Le Corbusier: A Travelling Exhibition

The travelling exhibition features physical models by the icon of modernist architecture, Le Corbusier. To address the challenges of a mobile exhibition, collapsible pedestals were built with sustainable materials that were robust, lightweight, easy to transport and assemble. It can flexibly accommodate the unique spatial requirements of different venues worldwide.
